HTC U23 Pro
The Taiwanese HTC has announced the HTC U23 Pro. In recent times, the device has often been circulating in the rumor circuit. Now we can share all the details with you. It is good to know that although the device bears the brand name of the Taiwanese manufacturer, the devices are made by the licensee. That does not alter the fact that we see a real HTC device here again.
The HTC U23 Pro offers a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset, which positions it at the top of the mid-range segment. There is 12GB of RAM and 256GB for storing files. The outside is wrapped in the colors ‘Coffee black’ or ‘Snow white’, or black-brown and white. The phone is IP67 certified which makes it water resistant.
Four cameras are placed on the back. This is a 108-megapixel main camera with OIS, an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens, a 5-megapixel macro lens and a depth lens that contains 2 megapixels. At the front, the smartphone from HTC is equipped with a 32-megapixel selfie lens. You can make videos in 4K resolution, where you can also use the image stabilization.
On board the HTC U23 Pro you will find a 4600 mAh battery, which you can charge with a 30W charger, or 15W wirelessly. There is a 6.7-inch OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and Full HD+ resolution. The smartphone comes with a fingerprint scanner on the side and offers dual-sim support. Also striking is the presence of a 3.5 millimeter audio connection.
We also see an integration of Viverse. A (virtual) metaverse environment in which you have various functions at your disposal. You can start the story with your own Viverse avatar, which has to introduce yourself. You bring the story even more to life with the optional VR glasses. The phone runs on Android 13. We seem to see some signs of the presence of HTC Sense, but it’s not clear exactly what that looks like on the HTC U23 Pro.
HTC releases the HTC U23 Pro in Europe for an amount of 569 euros. HTC currently only sells the device via its own website. It is unknown whether we will soon see the device physically in stores.
